If you’re like many people selling a home in DC Ranch this fall, you know that staging is incredibly important. So can you use fall decor to help sell your home?
Here’s what you need to know.
The Best Fall Decor for Selling Your DC Ranch Home
When you’re selling your home, seasonal decor has its place – but you have to use it sparingly to get the best effect. If you overdo seasonal touches, you’re likely to create a cluttered (or worse, confusing) look that can overwhelm prospective buyers.
You already know that staging is important, so all you have to do is swap out some standard staging items (like throw blankets, pillows and art) for fall-themed items. Check out this list of great add-ons that can make your home feel festively welcoming this autumn:
- Food-themed pieces in the kitchen
- Red, brown or burgundy throws in living rooms and bedrooms
- Faux fur rugs in bedrooms
- Fireplace accessories
- Harvest-related items in the dining room and kitchen
Here’s a closer look at each.
Fall Decor Item #1: Food-themed pieces in the kitchen
Add a basket of crisp, red apples to your kitchen counter, open a cookbook to an apple- or cinnamon-themed recipe and prop it on a book stand, or place a small jar of cinnamon bark on the counter (and make sure to leave it open). If you’re looking for something a little less cliché, opt for a basket of gourds and wheat stalks, or pick a vase full of red, orange and yellow flowers.
Fall Decor Item #2: Red, brown or burgundy throws in living rooms and bedrooms
Give off a cozy vibe with plush throw blankets and fluffy pillows on your sofa and beds. You don’t have to choose fall colors – and shouldn’t, if they’ll clash with your existing style – but you can add a splash of comfort and style if you can pull it off. Explore tartans, too; they’re some of the most under-used decorative elements, which means they’ll stand out and give your space a more unique feel without being so unique that it’s “edgy.”
Fall Decor Item #3: Faux fur rugs in bedrooms
Super-posh faux fur rugs for bedrooms are a great way to make your space appear more cozy and warm. Choose one large piece that covers the lower two-thirds of your bed or pick individual rugs (one for each side) to create a warm, inviting and ultra-relaxing space.
Fall Decor Item #4: Fireplace accessories
Your mantel is the perfect place to put up fall decor, but don’t go overboard. Choose an odd number (such as three or five, but no more) of pieces to celebrate the season. Things like gourds, fall signs and wreaths are perfect for this space.
Fall Decor Item #5: Harvest-related items in the dining room and kitchen
Fruit baskets, bread boards and other harvest-related items, like sprigs of wheat, are great additions to dining rooms and kitchens during fall. You can opt for a fall-themed centerpiece and place settings at your table or choose something even simpler, like a vase full of fall-colored flowers.
